Brother Andre's Heart


Two young wanna-be filmmakers live in a Montreal apartment. Theirs is an agoraphobic life, watching Star Trek re-runs and dreaming of international stardom. Over the months of inactivity, Jean Luc Picard and William Riker, from Star Trek: The Next Generation, have taken over their lives to the point where they play these characters incessantly, re-enacting their missions. One day their only friend in the building, Anna, introduces them to her Portuguese grandmother. She sends them on a mission to the basilica on Mount Royal to steal its central relic - Brother Andre's heart. They return to their apartment and wait for the police or a miracle.
"Perfect for young actors looking for a way to stretch their comic talents. Beautifully unpredictable."
Pat Dinama, Canadian Theatre Review
